Three Questions from a Noob

Recommended Posts

I was wondering 3 things,


1. I am using an Alcatel speedtouch usb Adsl modem, this machine, the one running linux and windows, i want to be a gateway for the other machine in this house (Winxp), now, i was wondering if anyone could help in maybe telling me where i could get the drivers, or how to install them, or how to configure anything related, i am with Internode (Isp).


2. - Answered this silly easy mount question by myself :)


3. How would i go about getting this machine in its linux state able to access the other machine, (Winxp) over the LAN. for sharing of files/internet/etc.



Thanks in Advance, and if you could state which question your answering when/if you do it would be muchly appreciated, note: i have never in my life used linux or unix or anything but windows before, so keep in mind that i wont know alot/any commands, so dont expect me to know what to do in some parts, once again, thanks in advance and sorry to be... umm... so noobish etc.
